Screenshot 2016-02-28 at 8.38.55 PMMy next local Woman in Horror is a filmmaker from neighbouring Prince Edward Island.  Her Nova Scotia connection is her degree in Journalism from The University of King’s College and her work with Ruby Tree films in Halifax (which she started).  Donna, also a freelance writer, began making films in 1989.  While she started out as a writer/director she says she producing is something she kind of grew into and she considers herself primarily a storyteller.

She has multiple horror endeavours to her name, including “Shadow Hunter”, a documentary series on paranormal in pop culture which she co-produced, wrote and directed, “Zombiemania” a look at zombies in pop culture and “Pretty Bloody”, a piece on female generated horror which was nominated for best Arts and Culture documentary at the Yorkton Film Festival.

    I watched Fanarchy (from Ruby Tree) today on TMN On Demand. Excellent documentary on fan-made films, copyright issues and the resources now available for crowdfunding projects and distribution.
